12oz bottle. 2.3%, whoa... This is almost an NA beer. Labeled as "less than 3.2%" on the bottle. Thin white head, that fizzes away to minimal. Clear yellow color. Kind of a sweet taste, with a skunky bite. Hay, salt, bread aroma. Bitey carbonation. Dry finish. Weird pepper aftertaste. Some acidity. I’d probably suggest this for somebody seeking low-ABV or super-light beer, but of course, it can’t compare to real beer. Has a slight gluten-free-esque character to it. By no means high-quality, but definitely better than other American macro light beers and it does what they do better -- it’s way lighter.

Pours a very light straw color with half inch head that faded very quickly. Almost non-existant aroma. Taste is dry, grainy, corn husk, with a slight hop note.

Bottle. Light yellow with almost no head. Very light smell of honey and sour. Light honey flavor. Watery.

UPDATED: JUN 17, 2012 You can turn up your nose at this stuff if you want, but if it is a foregone conclusion that you’re going to drink an extremely light beer, this is probably your best choice. Yes, it’s watery, but at least it has some beer flavor and some hoppy overtones. And unlike other less-than-100-calorie choices, it contains about as much alcohol as a standard beer. Comparing it to 150-calorie beer is like comparing a Weight Watchers meal to a four-course steak dinner. Of course it’s not as good, but everybody knows that. That’s not the point. If you want to get rid of the beer belly without giving up beer, this is an acceptable tradeoff. **************** Comment added after original rating: OK. Mea culpa. I’ve had a couple more bottles, and you’re right. It’s awful. I’d rather keep the beer belly.

Green bottle poured a clear very pale yellow with a small lingeriung white head. Aromas of straw, bread dough and light skunk. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a watery finish. Flavors of light white bread with a crisp watery finish.

Bottle. Holy skunk Batman! Pours a very pale yellow with a head that fades a wee bit faster than the speed of light. Aroma of skunk and acrid grain with a bit of toastiness peeking out. The taste is bitter grassy hops, faint malts, and some skunk in the finish. Thin and watery. The only upside to this beer is that it makes the Shock Top on deck almost seem appealing. Ugh.

This is just a very light version of the regular becks and a thinner body if that is even possible.

6 pack. Fizzing gold, short-lived sudsy top. But let’s face it, you’re not meant to put this beer in a glass. Curry house lager, dish water, toasted cereal and honey aroma. Better flavour with some of the rabbit hutch, hay, breadstick and honey character of it’s bigger brother. Slight bitterness, cereal finish. Palatable low alcohol with intact hop and malt flavours- chilled and from the bottle after a long night’s work/tedium/wood-chopping, even better than palatable. 64 Kcal is astonishing- can see me sinking a few more 6 packs of this in order to rediscover mine. Decent lager, ludicrously underrated.
